Warn user if component that they are trying to paste is outdated
Currently when working with multiple documents, if you have overwrites on a component. And you modify that component, and then paste the component or artboard into a file that has an outdated version of that component.
It will paste the components but reset the overwrites and set the component back to it's default state. It doesn't inform the user about why it just resetted all their content. Which can be extremely annoying to the user, as this seems very weird. (Which is why there are also several support tickets of people running into this issue).
After talking with support, I now understand why it happens. However I strongly believe that informing the user about this issue would greatly improve the user experience. We didn't understand why it happened, and as such spend 6 hours readding content to the document.
I have made a simple quick mockup what this model could look like to indicate what I mean. This is obviously just a quick draft, and the style and copy should be better. However I feel like any information to the user would be better then just resetting all overwrites and not telling the user why they where reset. (As it's quite easy to miss if a libary or document assets are outdated)

This model would either solve, or atleast inform the user as to how to prevent it the following issues/support issues.
